@soon-to-be:  Coming from being the “second engaged” one, I hope that your FI’s bro will be respectable in the same sense we were – Fi’s Bro got engaged first (but they haven’t been dating as long as we have) and got married this past July.  We got engaged last January, about 4 months after their engagement, but decided to wait until the following year after their wedding to get engaged – for reasons of keeping it a long distance away from their day,  as well as not being too hard on the parents who are doing their best to try and help out both weddings financially.

Also, if they have only been dating 8 months, there is a bigger chance that they may have a long engagement? I would hope so, anyways!

Regardless, there are some people that you just cannot change as much as you may want to. If he’s that jealous, competitive guy, it’s something you will unfortunately have to suffer through.  But the upside is, I’m sure you aren’t the only one that sees that, and I’m sure others will share your feelings.  Maybe his parents will help ensure that their wedding day is planned for much later than yours – perhaps you can talk to them about trying to convince him of that, saying it would just be better for everyone?

And yes, you are allowed to have a Bridezilla moment. Especially here. Where the hell else are ya gonna do it!?! haha.

Hope you have a great wedding, regardless!

I have a friend (Samantha) who’s sister (Danielle) got engaged over christmas. My friends boyfriend then decided to propose 2 months later (on his own accord), and ever since, Danielle has been trying to “up one” on her ever since, because she wanted the spot light and couldnt stand the thought of her little sister actually *gasp* getting some attention.

The second Samantha announced her engegment, Danielle had to announce they were building a house, when Samamntha announced her wedding date, Danielle announced they were trying for a baby, on Samanthas wedding day, Danielle announced she was pregnant. 

It seems your brother-in-law just wants some attention too. I understand its hard not to let it get to you, but just figure, hes only known her 8 months, shes seems a bit crazy. How long can their relationship last. They might not even make it to the alter.
